Christmas Decorations Christmas is a hands-on art. From the lights we put on the house to the decorations we put on the tree to the great foods we eat in the process, Christmas is a time of doing -- and this is the place we gather to talk, plan and share.

Vintage-esque Christmas Wrapping Paper

Hello everyone...

Hopefully my request makes sense (and if this thread belongs in a better forum, please let me know).

I occasionally go off on a web tangent, searching for things because I get a sudden inspiration or see a unique picture.

I've recently seen some unique, vintage Christmas wrapping paper on Pinterest. There's something about the design, colors, layout and the combination of it all that just impresses me so.

I know it's still early (although August is this week), but I'm wondering if anyone knows of a source for vintage-style wrapping paper, without the high cost. I found a neat roll on etsy (through Pinterest) that was $150 - way beyond my pricing. But, if I could find the paper from a supplier today, I would be interested in buying.

If anyone has suggestions of a supplier, I would appreciate a web-link or other details.

Thank you!

Jim

I did a quick search on Ebay and there are some actual vintage paper at decent prices.

There is retroplanet.com which has some cool stuff.

sweetvintagewrappingpaper.com


I hope this helps a little.
